Mindy's Movie Reviews

A blog that went from discussing about the writing life to reviews of movies


It is Script Frenzy month here and I thought it would be fun to share some famous movie scripts.

My challenge (and it's an easy one) is for you to choose one of the four scripts below and read it while watching the movie itself. (Beware that there may be some changes done in the movie that were not included in the script)

See if you can notice what makes a scene important, why they kept that dialogue, and what was done differently to better the movie.

Try to choose one of the movies you have not seen before. It helps to see the difference between the vision of the writer and what the director has done with the piece.
  1. Casablanca
  2. Toy Story 3
  3. Knocked Up
  4. Inception
For television scripts I will give you two links for you to try to find some episodes to read:
Let me know what you think about the different style of writing, how the script and the movie/t.v show compares etc.

Have fun!

Sounds like an interesting challenge. I'll have to give it a go after Easter, when things aren't quite so busy.
